jobs we need and to make american business is and workers competitive competitive in the global marketplace. simply put, the tax code is a nightmare. it is too complex, too time- consuming and costly. about 6% of individual taxpayers have to hire others to do their tax return because the code is too complicated. as a result, if it were an industry, it would be the largest in the united states and would consume 6.1 billion hours, the equivalent of more than 3 million full-time workers. yes, it is too costly. taxpayers spent -- spent 163 billion complying with the individual and corporate income tax rolls. add to that the fact that the u.s. has the highest corporate tax rate, and an outdated worldwide system of taxation and not to -- it is not too difficult to imagine why many do not view america as an attractive place to hire and invest. nothing about the bill we are considering tonight changes the realities. that is why the ways and means committee will pursue tax recovery of the tax reform in the next congress. -- will pursue tax reform in the next congress. i urge my colleague

the wealthy. this week we did that. for first time we raised taxes on the wealthiest 2% americans in a bipartisan way and avoiding a middle-class tax hike that could throw the economy back into a recession. 97% of small businesses will not see their income taxes go up one dime. we maid sure that millions of families will continue to see tax credits. companies will continue to receive tax breaks for the research they do, investments they make, and the clean energy jobs they make. two million americans that are out of work will continue to receive unemployment benefits as long as they are actively looking for a job. we still need to do more to put americans back to work while also putting this country on a path to pay down its debt. our economy can't afford more showdowns on the manufacturing crisis along the way. even as our businesses created two million new jobs last year, including 168,000 jobs last month the dysfunction in congress made consumers less confident. we know there is a path forward. i signed into a law a deaf reduction. this week's action further reduces the deaf --
